Nancy Kirkpatrick (ex-head of marketing at Summit Entertainment) talks about Kristen


Nancy Kirkpatrick with Catherine Hardwicke at the 'Twilight' premiere in LA.

And Stewart, who as a child costarred with Jodie Foster in "Panic Room," has proved herself post-"Twilight" not only with the big-budget follow "Snow White and the Huntsman" (one of 2012's top 20 films at the box office), but also with smartly chosen roles in indie movies like "Still Alice" and "Clouds of Sils Maria," which is generating Oscar buzz for the actress.

"Kristen was a really gifted actress before she ever read 'Twilight,'" said Nancy Kirkpatrick, who worked with the actress when she served as the head of marketing at Summit Entertainment, which made the "Twilight" films. "When she's 50, we're still gonna see her work."

"Now I watch her in interviews and feel like I'm actually seeing the real Kristen, but that's taken a long time," Kirkpatrick said of the 25-year-old. "She has an amazing team and publicist. She's practiced. But she also just grew up."

Co-star Lily Gladstone talks about 'Certain Women' & mentions Kristen



It was temporary, though – a set built for the independent film "Certain Women," in which Gladstone was acting opposite Kristen Stewart, who's taken a turn toward art-house fare in the years since "Twilight" made her famous.

Gladstone was selected for the part of Jamie, a reclusive young woman who falls into the orbit of Stewart, a recent law school graduate undergoing a crisis of her own. In addition to Stewart, the leads are an acclaimed group: Laura Dern and Michelle Williams, forming a Robert Altman-like ensemble drama of everyday adults quietly consumed with crises.

Director Kelly Reichardt's film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month. It's the first Montana feature tapped as an official Sundance selection since Travis Wilkerson's "Who Killed Cock Robin?" in 2005 and Alex and Andrew Smith's "The Slaughter Rule" in 2002, according to the Montana Film Office.

***

Reichardt developed the screenplay from short stories by Helena native Maile Meloy.

Gladstone said it's an ensemble-drama, three-act structure, with four leads who don't necessarily interact with one another.

Dern plays an attorney named Laura Wells, whose client is unsatisfied with a workers' compensation settlement and takes a handful of people hostage at the courthouse, a situation Laura must help diffuse.

Williams, a native of Kalispell, plays Gina Lewis, a woman whose marriage is falling apart. She and her husband become involved with an elderly man who has a stockpile of sandstone on his property.

Stewart and Gladstone's story comprises the third act. Jamie lives and works alone as a ranch hand, caring for someone else's animals.

Gladstone said she's a young woman "in the throes of her first existential crisis." She's "very highly strung, somebody who wants to prove that she's invincible but gets broken pretty frequently because of it."

She meets Beth, a recent law school grad who's teaching an adult education class in town, despite the long commute it requires.

"To Jamie she seems like this lawyer, this myth of a person, someone you meet and immediately put on a pedestal," Gladstone said.

They soon find they have more in common than they realize.

"It feels like one of those points in all of our lives where we're searching for something, and something comes and feels exactly like what we needed," she said.

Gladstone said Stewart is level-headed and a hard worker, and Reichardt is an actor's director – she gives the performers the first take and offers advice about scaling back or burying an emotion.

"She said at one point, 'You get one moment in this story. And it's not this one,' " Gladstone said.

The movie was shot mostly in the Livingston area on 16-millimeter film with the help of a grant from the Montana Film Office.

Lars Eidinger talks about working with Kristen on 'Personal Shopper'



"I luckily was able to be part of another movie by Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper) in which I shot a whole day with Kristen Stewart. Her level of acting and mine are worlds apart, I just have to admit that. You must fool yourself if you believe you're even close to hollywood niveau. But with Kristen, it's not like people think: Acting isn't about lying and pretending. It's about being honest to yourself and to the audience all the time. She rules it! You look at her and it feels like it's right for her in this moment. She doesn't force it, she doesn't reproduce what she just made up. She always plays it differently and "in the moment".

"I would love to act this way aswell."

Note: Lars also worked with Kristen on 'Clouds of Sils Maria'.

New Interview with the LA Times


When historians look back at this decade of moviemaking their first instinct may be to crown Alejandro Iñárritu's "Birdman" as the definitive statement on the culture of celebrity of this era. If they are smart, they'll present another film that is arguably more spot on in how it portrays the movie industry's inherent narcissism: Olivier Assayas' "Clouds of Sils Maria." Critics have been simmering on the drama since it debuted at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and surprised many by remembering to shower one of its stars, Kristen Stewart, with honors over the past month.

On one Sunday this month, Stewart won the supporting actress prize from both the New York Film Critics Circle and the Boston Society of Film Critics. A few days later, she was the official runner-up for the same honor from the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. These were unforeseen kudos even when you consider that Stewart became the first American woman to win a César Award, France's equivalent of the Academy Award, for her performance in "Clouds" in February. Because it was released in the United States this calendar year, Assayas' drama was eligible for most critic honors this awards season, but Stewart says she wasn't expecting any of the adoration she's receiving.
"For that movie to get any sort of attention it's a huge surprise considering it's not the most commercial movie and especially considering everyone else who was considered," Stewart says. "It blew my head off, to be honest."
"Clouds" finds Stewart playing Valentine, the young assistant to a famous Hollywood actress, Maria (Juliette Binoche), who is trying to come to terms with her place in the global celebrity microcosm after agreeing to star in the revival of a play that launched her career two decades earlier. Valentine and Maria's relationship straddles the line between professional and personal, allowing Stewart to showcase some of the most nuanced work of her career.
"Initially, I looked at it as something that moved me. It was very emotional, but it was kind of interesting banter between two women," Stewart says. "It was an interesting role for me to play considering my position in the business and my awareness of how potentially superficial and strange it can be and how funny it would be to hear certain words come out of my mouth."
Binoche and Stewart formed a strong bond while shooting the picture that still resonates. One of the more memorable moments involved a scene where Valentine and Marie jumped into a freezing river. Assayas wanted the actors to figure out the scene together, and Stewart jokes that her reaction was the "epitome of a young American."
"It's literally glacial runoff this ... lake, and I looked up and before I knew it [Binoche] was completely ... naked. And I'm like, 'I'm not doing that.' And then we just jumped in," Stewart recalls. "We had such a big adrenaline rush, and we'd both been through so much already. All the air was out of our lungs. We couldn't breathe. And that sort of exemplified that experience."
Frankly, Stewart earning recognition for her work in "Clouds" now isn't that surprising. She's coming off a year and a half during which she also impressed in the Sundance drama "Camp X-Ray" and Oscar-winning tearjerker "Still Alice." Of course, those sorts of accolades are the furthest things from her mind. Stewart always attempted to find projects that pushed her during her breaks during the four years she was filming and promoting the "Twilight" franchise but says she "feels lucky" so many interesting films presented themselves afterward.
"Now people know I'm a weirdo and open to doing stuff down the line that isn't completely commercial," Stewart notes. "It's a strange feeling, because I've always liked things that were a bit more diagonal in terms of how people consume them."
Stewart shot five films in 2015, including Kelly Reichardt's "Certain Women," which will debut at the Sundance Film Festival next month, Woody Allen's untitled 2016 picture, Ang Lee's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" and "Personal Shopper," a drastically different reunion with Assayas that she describes as "entirely existential and lonely, really poetic and really, really cool." Or, in even simpler terms, "super French."
"The person I'm playing now is a nut bag, so it's kind of working in my favor," Stewart says of her nonstop 12 months. "I'm lucky it's OK for me to look a little tired right now."

Audio: Kristen's interview with THR's Scott Feinberg on his 'Awards Chatter' podcast


imagebam.com

Click on pic for full view.

This photo of Kristen with Scott was taken on 23 December when the podcast was recorded.

'Awards Chatter' is a weekly podcast, moderated by THR awards analyst Scott Feinberg, featuring musings about the Oscar, Emmy and Tony races, as well as in-depth interviews with top contenders for those prizes. 

Listen to the podcast HERE on iTunes (download it from iTunes too) or here.

The 25-year-old, who became the first American actress ever to win a Cesar Award and won several critics groups' awards for her portrayal of a movie star's assistant, reflects on celeb obsession—on screen and off—and offers advice to Daisy Ridley.

"As somebody who's dealt with the more absurd, really surreal, oftentimes insanely superficial, empty circus of what the media can be — and perception versus reality — I thought it was really funny and appropriate for me to play that part," says the actress Kristen Stewart of the one for which she currently is receiving accolades left and right — Val, an assistant to a movie star in the celeb-obsessed world of Olivier Assayas' dark comedy Clouds of Sils Maria — as we sit down to record an episode of the 'Awards Chatter' podcast. "There was just nobody who could say those things with more knowing, and people know that," she continues with a laugh. "I wanted those words in my mouth."

For her performance in the French indie, Stewart became the first American actress ever to win a Cesar Award (France's equivalent of the Oscar) and was subsequently chosen as the year's best supporting actress by the New York Film Critics Circle and Boston Society of Film Critics (she finished second with the Los Angeles Film Critics Association) — acknowledgement she calls "so cool and unexpected," particularly for a movie that came out way back in April. But it's little wonder that the 25-year-old knocked the role out of the park — per her comments above, she's spent years "preparing" for it.

Stewart began acting as a child and became the face of one of the biggest film franchises of all time at a time when her contemporaries were heading off to college, thrusting her into the center of a world not unlike the one sent up in Clouds. "I did Twilight when I was 17, it came out when I was 18 and my life was never even remotely the same," she says. Her work was no longer the focus of most of the attention she received; instead, people — fans and haters alike — obsessed about her appearance, her relationships and her every move, "a huge lifestyle shift" which wasn't easy to deal with. Even so, she says she doesn't regret her decision to sign up for the series: "A whole lot of other baggage — really heavy and really cool baggage — came along with it."

It's fortunate that the madness around Stewart didn't turn her away from her profession, because she eventually realized that it offered her an "epic opportunity to share things" of importance to her "with an epic amount of people" — particularly indie films of the sort she specialized in before Twilight, which she continued to make between its installments and has made almost exclusively since she wrapped work on the series. Clouds, a $6 million French project, was one such film. (It never found much of an audience amongst the general public, but was very warmly received by critics, landing an 89% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com.)

Stewart, who became intrigued with filmmaking as a kid (her mother was a script supervisor) and asked to audition for kids roles (her parents initially resisted the idea), says she came — and comes — out of her shell of shyness when inhabiting the lives of others. Initially, the appeal of filmmaking was the exciting environment, but she says she realized that acting itself was her calling while making the indie Speak when she was just 13. "It moved me in a way that felt really beyond anything I knew it could be," she says. That film premiered at Sundance, as did a host of others low-budget passion projects in which she later starred, including Adventureland, The Yellow Handkerchief, Welcome to the Rileys, The Runaways and Camp X-Ray.

But Stewart is quick to emphasize that she doesn't judge a film by its size and that she loved the Twilight films and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), her other big-studio undertaking. "It was rare to see movies that I cared about at that scale," she says, "and I really haven't since, or else I would probably try and get that job." She continues, "I'm genuinely just drawn to material that's moving," noting, "Recently I've been into slightly more diagonal sort of, a little less straight down the line, in terms of story, and those are always a little bit less commercial."

Stewart, who describes her acting technique as impulse-driven, totally commits herself to all of her projects, body and soul. "When you feel like you're gonna die is when you feel the most alive," she asserts. "I feel as though I might actually spontaneously combust sometimes and just not be able to go on." While that may sound unhealthy, she insists it's exactly what she's aiming for — and finding more often as she gets older. "I trust myself a little bit more. When I was a little bit younger, I used anxiety and nerves, which I still have a lot of. It's just that I'm better at channeling them. I get better every time I do a job." She adds, "It's getting more fun."

Stewart's approach to work and life has impressed many of her more experienced costars — Panic Room's Jodie Foster, Welcome to the Rileys' Melissa Leo, Still Alice's Julianne Moore and Clouds of Sils Maria's Juliette Binoche all have become vocal champions. ("They're all women that anyone, really, would be lucky to spend time around," says Stewart.) Some of those women seem to want to protect her from the nonsense she has to face when she's not at work, which has, at times, understandably, left her fragile. But, when Clouds was offered to her, Stewart — who was on an extended hiatus from acting at the time — embraced it as an opportunity to stand up for herself. "I've played a lot of characters that don't speak a lot," she says. "At that point I think I was ready to start talking."

Stewart feels Clouds offers a "slow — I mean that with a good connotation — thoughtful, really beautiful meditation" on celebrity obsession, which is something she clearly feels merits greater thought. "It's weird because it does shape the way I have to approach my everyday life," she says. "I've never fed into it. I've never had a public Twitter, I've never had a public Facebook or things where people go on and look at your every move, like Instagram and stuff like that, because it's just so empty and distracting." She pauses and animatedly exclaims, "I don't understand how so many people don't view it as what it is, which is nothing at all. It's just nothing, all of it — it doesn't exist. And so yeah, it's weird — but it makes sense." Meaning? It supports a demand from a lot of bored people, she explains, and also produces "a lot of money, a lot of hits on websites."

The film also explores a host of other interesting topics, such as growing older in show business, and it feels very European, in the best sense — it's dialogue-driven, it revolves around female characters and it doesn't pretend to have answers to all of the questions that it raises. "I like the unanswered questions at the end of it," she says.

Stewart says she has no plans to stop acting anytime soon, despite the price that she has to pay to do it. (She just wrapped production on Woody Allen's next movie, which pairs her for the third time with actor Jesse Eisenberg, and which she describes as "a trip," suggesting that Allen, who she likens to a funny grandpa and called "Dude" on the set, is a great actor's director because of the way he writes his characters.) "I feel really stimulated and challenged and not bored," she says. "If that ran out, then I would stop acting." She's also interested in writing a screenplay, and has a "really, really, really strong desire to direct," probably something "really free-form." But, for now, she insists, "I'm madly in love with what I do."

What advice does she have for the latest person thrown into the celebrity meat-grinder, Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 23-year-old leading lady Daisy Ridley? "Focus on the fact that you're stoked 'cause you're doing the work that you want to do," she offers. "It's literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy. And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn't make you happy, then focus on something else."

Clouds of Sils Maria was released by Sundance Selects on April 10. Awards voters are being asked to consider Stewart for best supporting actress.

Filming for the second time with Olivier Assayas, Kristen Stewart talks about her taste for indie, her meeting with Karl Lagerfeld, Woody Allen, The Specials and her right to be ambiguous.

After 'Sils Maria', you're currently filming 'Personal Shopper', Olivier Assayas's new movie. What can you tell us about your character?

Kristen: I'm literally killing myself for this film, my back is broken. I'm 100% involved. I did not realize how deep and existential it was, and how much it moves me. I play a very very very lonely girl, who isn't sure of who she is. Her twin brother died. And she has an obsession: get in contact with him. At the same time, she's a shopper for this woman who is a public figure and embodies a very superficial way of life. This is a film about reality, about what is real. Does all we feel is real? What we rely on?

You works in Paris for this movie. Were you there the night of the attacks?

Kristen: No, in Prague, we left Paris forty-eight hours before. We were all together, we were having a good night and very quickly news were coming on phones. We had to shoot the next day, it seemed completely absurd. To play, to tell a story, you have to fully be in what you do. In a situation like this, it's complicated. All the crew was French, chocked, and constantly on the phone. I find it very difficult to talk about this kind of event. We touch the inconceivable, the unthinkable. We are a generation who never knew the war, it is not part of our daily lives, and neither is this kind of violence. It's stuff we usually read in newspapers. The intensity of the shock we feel proves that we have no idea what this is. For a large part of humanity that lives in a country being in war, it's not a shock, it's just everyday reality.

Would you say that Sils Maria was a turning point in your career, in your way to position you as an actress?

Kristen: I have the feeling that Olivier has really chosen me - well chosen - for these two movies. The cast really makes sense, he didn't called me because he thinks I'm nice and cool. He took me with everything I am and what I represent in the cinema world. 'Sils Maria' was very meta, he plays with that. People have any desire at all to know how it's sometimes difficult to be an actress, to deal with superficiality, business, celebrity.

'Sils Maria' was like a shelter, a safe place where I can say things I don't have the right to tell without looking like a thankless. I've also discovered with him the possible difference between majority of American directors and a French director like him. In France, you know that without risk, without endangering, there is no real artistic work. The cinephilia we don't have in the US also makes all the difference. Money, recognition from critics are important but secondary. And all this conforted me in what I was looking for and gave me confidence.

You're one of Chanel's muses. You've just presented 'Once and Forever' in Rome, Karl Lagerfeld's latest short film in which you play a young Coco alongside Jérémie Elkaïm and Geraldine Chaplin. Do you feel comfortable in the fashion world?

Kristen: Depends on people I meet. I believe in its creative part, I like it. The way people can be attracted to this world, this, can be disgusting. I enjoy the company of Karl. He's a living encyclopedia. He wants to pass on to younger generations around him. He could have a huge ego - and he may have one - but I find it great that he's in this position. Inspiration is really what he's obsessed about, leading him to create what he creates. He loves movies, I think he could have been director in another life. I love learning from directors I work with.

What did learnt from Woody Allen with who you just shot?

[She thought for a long time]

Kristen: His writing. It's precise, virtuoso. He has his own language. When he speaks, it's a mix of humor and assumed arrogance. Annie Hall remains my favorite Woody.

Which directors that matter to you?

Kristen: Martin Scorsese. He is capable of making big movies killing it. In France, I love Jacques Audiard. A Prophet transported me.. I would kill to work with him. I also really like Andrea Arnold. I love Fish Tank. This year, I loved Mustang, Deniz Gamze Erguven's movie.

Could you play a James Bond girl?

Kristen: No. I have no problem being a part of entertainment culture - and James Bond is a very good illustration of it. But becoming the definition of a sex symbol and just that, no. I have no problem with being sexy, I need a story.

You said that you didn't want to define yourself, that you are an ambiguity. Do you believe in gender fluidity?

Kristen: Totally! The insane and absurd pressure put on people who don't fit the dominant model disgusts me. I find this desire for control, archaic and creepy. I'm lucky, I live in Los Angeles, I grew up in West Hollywood, my parents are open-minded people who always encouraged me to be free, I work in movies. I know it's not as easy for everyone.

You're under a constant attention. You're scrutinized, we can see you with your boys and girls on Instagram..

Kristen: Yes, but I don't care. That said, I think things are changing among the younger generations. I'm sure if I have kids they won't understand why there could a problem. When I was a kid, difference was problematic. It was common to hear, "Oh, you're gay, you're weird, oh you look like a guy." And maybe yes, maybe no, it depends on who I'm going out with right now.

What are you listening at the moment?

Kristen: I don't know what happens to me, I fell back in Oasis. I'm crazy about Bon Iver, and his new group, Volcano Choir. It's faster and less folk than what he was doing when he was solo. And otherwise, The Specials. I'd love to love electronic music. But I can't. The thing that drives me crazy, when I want to dance, it's ska.

'Certain Women' will premiere on 24 January at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016



Certain Women / U.S.A. (Director: Kelly Reichardt, Screenwriter: Kelly Reichardt based on stories by Maile Meloy) — The lives of three woman intersect in small-town America, where each is imperfectly blazing a trail. Cast: Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, James Le Gros, Jared Harris, Lily Gladstone. World Premiere



First Still

Full synopsis via Sundance official page for 'Certain Women':

Certain Women drops us into a handful of intersecting lives across Montana. A lawyer (Laura Dern) tries to diffuse a hostage situation and calm her disgruntled client (Jared Harris), who feels slighted by a workers’ compensation settlement. A married couple (Michelle Williams and James Le Gros) breaks ground on a new home but exposes marital fissures when they try to persuade an elderly man to sell his stockpile of sandstone. A ranch hand (Lily Gladstone) forms an attachment to a young lawyer (Kristen Stewart), who inadvertently finds herself teaching a twice-weekly adult education class, four hours from her home.

Kelly Reichardt returns to the American West, by way of Maile Meloy’s short stories, but upends its traditional associations. Here, the rugged men of yesteryear struggle with age, injury, and indignation while the women imperfectly blaze trails. Reichardt’s unhurried, observational style resists judgment or sentimentality. The picturesque setting masks lives of quiet desperation and conflicting emotion. All three stories strain with longing, populated by flawed people wrestling with moral ambiguity and living between isolation and intimacy.

Running time: 107 mins.


The festival runs from January 21 until 31 January 2016 throughout venues in Park City, Salt Lake City and Ogden UT USA.

New Kristen interview in Marie Claire France (December 2015)



imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com

Click on scans for full view.

On the pictures of you in Seoul, taken last summer, you appear in your everyday outfit, wearing jeans and a T-Shirt. Do you remain true to yourself when you dress up sophisticated and you are a muse for CHANEL?

I would never compromise myself. I’m really often just wearing jeans, like anybody else. Even the people who enjoy to dressing up really well don’t do it everyday. I don’t become someone different when I’m wearing clothes that are elegant or sophisticated. I don’t betray anything, I don’ t pretend, I don’t play any part, I just feel like I’m showing people another side of me. Sometimes clothes give people access to a part of yourself that no one would suspect.

Is there something you cannot travel without?

Yes. My CHANEL guitar case, I use it as a travel bag because It’s hard for me to find travel bags that I like! This one is really cool!

Last July, you were part of the CHANEL Fashion Show at Le Grand Palais, transformed into a Casino. How does it feel to be the guest star of such an event?

Right before, I was feeling super nervous to open the show, it made me sick! But then, as soon as the music started playing, I started walking and I forgot everything, I didn’t exist anymore, there was only a big story left. I really loved it. I’ve never done theatre, but I like to be part of something bigger than me. Sitting at the game table, like in a role, I couldn’t see the models walking on the runway. After the show, I had to look at the whole collection on the internet. I would rather do it this way by the way, it allows you to « consume » the collection the way you want to, instead of being in this environment where everyone dissects everyone, with this constant fucking self-awareness.

Do you like attending Fashion Shows?

During a « normal » Fashion Show, people spend their time taking pictures with their phones, and sending texts to their agents « I want this piece, I don’t give a fuck, I need this piece make it happen (this part is hard to translate, but that’s what she means lol) ». I don’t ever do that. A Fashion Show is stands as a whole, it’s like a story. The most stunning part is all the staging.

You are Karl’s muse for CHANEL. Why do you think he picked you?

Honestly? I don’t know! Karl and I, we really loved each other, it’s been a really natural collaboration. But I also believe that people who have a genuine artistic sense, compulsive artists, gravitate around each others. People like Karl are here because they truly love what they are doing. I say loudly and clearly, and I am sincere, that I have ultimate freedom, my artistic integrity is total.

Actress, you also write and play the guitare. In your answers to Patti Smith, in the « Interview Magazine », you define yourself as a « total artist ». What does it mean to be a « total artist »?

An artist is someone who doesn’t have any choice but express himself, leaving something behind him, that other people interpret and « consume » the way they want to. i don’t care if i’m not considerated as an artist, I haven’t created anything, even though I think some actors are real artists. Acting is an art that I have been exploring since I was 10, but it doesn’t mean I can’t do anything else. To be an artist a maybe a notion that you can only understand if you’re tortured. It says something that is never obtained, something you can’t describe because you can’t reach it. it trying every day to find something new, to describe something that has never been before. It’s a permanent fight, it’s exactly what Karl is doing. Fuck, it really compares you to the people who are only doing their job. An artist can send poetic texts to his friends with « why » and « how ».

In this interview, you also said that you were looking for people to direct your own movie. I though « This woman is looking for her tribe (her people) »

Exactly. it’s funny because that’s the first thing Patti Smith told me when I met her for the first time at an after party. I didn’t know her but I had been idolizing her since I was a teen. I was feeling good, I was in a strange mood. She came to me « Hey, How are you? « and I replied « Yeah, I’m good! ». She blew my mind : « I know you’re not feeling well. I just want you to know, that your people are here for you » « My people, » I instantly understood she was referring to the people gravitating around me, the ones you create thing with. « You might be sad right now, but you’re people are here and you will find them ». Karl told me the same thing once, when I was going to work and I was feeling a little down « Here, you’re with the people who really love you ». What a relief! Thank you! It was so cool that someone like him would tell me something like this, because he is a fucking artist. That’s what it means to find your people (your tribe). It’s to find people who allows you to be honest.

You say that Hollywood is « disgusting and sexist ». Every actress says the same thing.

Actress? Replace « actress » by « woman »: every woman say the same thing.

You’re right. What does it mean to be a woman in Hollywood now?

To be considered « equal », and I use quotation mark here, is something really new. It’s really getting better, it happened in a really short period of time. But women who sit to complain and bemoan about inequality are « lazy » ( I’m not sure how to translate this word they used here sorry). The ones who really want things to change about equity in terms of salaries, opportunities, should fight for it. If you truly know what you want, you have to give the best of yourself to get it. It shouldn’t be given to you. sitting on a chair with your arms crossed , whining : « oh it’s so unfair, women don’t get the parts they deserve » is useless. Ok, go ahead, write a scenario or something. And at the same time you would have to be really dumb and ridiculous if you didn’t notice inequalities in this industry, it’s crazy, it’s completely dominated and run by men. But and ambitious and creative woman can make it.

But at the same time, in this industry most women are doing what men are expecting from them: to be sexy, act a certain way to please them, seduce…

Exactly! And it’s natural! Women love men, they want to attract and be accepted. What we get money for is also a brake. You don’t need to be the loudest person in the room to be heard. Sometimes you just have to play with the cards you already have, to speak up calmly but a little more firmly. To reach equality is gonna take a while, but maybe we’ll end up loving each other. Look at people from my generation, it’s happening more frequently.

Regarding your Rebel etiquette, you recently said « fuck it all » today, what would be your moto « fuck it all » or « All I need is love? »

« All I need is love »

Official BTS video with Kristen's interview (from 1.09mins but more throughout)

Short print interview with WWD:

Stewart, dressed in a sparkly silver jacket and wide-leg leather pants, marveled that Lagerfeld always manages to deliver “what resonates emotionally with people,” in this case the bewitching beauty and charm of Paris, perhaps even more ravishing when drained of color, as it was in Lagerfeld’s set.

The actress is filming “Personal Shopper” in the French capital. “There’s a cinematic culture in Paris that doesn’t exist anywhere else,” she said.

Short interview with InStyle:

At the finale of the show, the set then transformed as shop doors opened, and waiters appeared with plates of pasta and cheese, oysters, and endless desserts. I found Kristen Stewart near a pizzeria, gamely fielding questions on her performance as an actor cast to portray the young Coco Chanel in a biopic. She had no time to prepare for the role, and had to trust Lagerfeld’s instincts, since he improvised the script even while filming.

“I like being able to follow somebody who takes risks and doesn’t need to plan everything and buries these little gems in order to find them later and surprise yourself, so following him, I didn’t feel in a precarious situation at all,” she said. “I felt the way I wanted to feel – a little tipped on the edge, at all times.”

Interview with NYTimes:

Ms. Stewart, now a veteran of the Chanel scene (she has been working with Mr. Lagerfeld since 2013), was at pains to stress that art did not always imitate life, as hordes of excitable editors and clients played their parts by sampling treats at the oyster bar, ice cream stands and fully functioning bakery.

“I can assure you the food is never, ever this good on real movie sets,” she said, adding that she had just taken a cooking lesson, part of her own Roman holiday from a current filming schedule in Paris.

“But this is Karl, and with the world of Chanel, he creates his own rules when he wants to celebrate something,” Ms. Stewart said. “I’ve learned so much from working repeatedly with someone with such an intense attraction to fantasy, and to risk.

“He’s a true visionary, mainly because of his uncanny ability to read the times and moods that change them,” she said. “Who knows what he will do next?”
